Breakups can be pretty hard and tough to deal with, especially if you’re the one who was more invested in the relationship. However, gulping down tubs of ice cream is not exactly a good or healthy way of dealing with your breakup and will only make you feel worse in the long run. Maybe it does help a day or two after the breakup, but then you’ve got to get yourself together and tell yourself that you’re better than this, because you are
You go through many emotional phases after a breakup. First comes denial, then comes acceptance, and then comes the part where you move on and make yourself a better person. You have to survive through the pain and make it to the part where you move on and make yourself a better person.
When you reach this final stage of moving on, you usually look for a new goal and a new person, which is actually a healthy approach. One of the goals you can focus on is getting in shape. This goal will make you feel much better about yourself and it will help you grow and get over your ex. You might want to take revenge from your ex by getting in shape. However, it’s important that you strive for a better shape for yourself, not for your ex. The fact that you’ll get a revenge body is just a sweet bonus!
Here are a few ways and tips to get in the best shape of your life after a rough breakup:
• Start a new exercise program
The most important thing after a breakup is to feel comfortable in your own skin and to feel confident in yourself. Breakups can often take away people’s confidence. Therefore, it’s very important to keep your confidence up post-breakup. One of the ways to boost your confidence and energy is to start a new exercise program. Not only will this keep you fit and healthy but it will also make you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
• Focus on your lower body
This way, you’ll not only sculpt your thighs and butts, but you’ll also burn more calories because the lower body muscles are some of the largest muscles of the body. Plus, your ass (butt?) will look great in those jeans!
• Skip the margarita
Skip the margarita with your friends at happy hour and replace it with a glass of water or any other healthy drink that’s actually healthy. Yeah, I know, it doesn’t sound that sexy but hey, at the end of the day, you’re actually getting a sexy body out of all this hard work and self-control.
• Get proper sleep
You should sleep for about 7 hours daily and never compromise on your sleep because you can’t stop crying and missing your ex. They’re not worth it. Never lose sleep over anyone because sleeping for a good amount of time helps your body restart and it’s good for your health. You’ll wake up wrinkle-free and full of energy.
• Wake up and do a burpee challenge every day.
This will not only kick-start your metabolism but it will also make you feel more fresh, energetic and positive. Starting the day with exercise is a good way to gather positive vibes and positive energy. You can start with 20 burpees in the beginning and then add one burpee each day so that by the end of the month, you’ll be doing about 50 burpees every day. Keep up this burpee challenge for at least a month. You can also put up a chart and record the number of burpees you do every day so that the chart motivates you whenever you feel like skipping them.
• Say no to midnight snacks!
They’re your worst enemy in reaching your fitness goals. They’re there, hiding in your closet, waiting for your willpower and self-control to get weak before they can prey on you. It’s better for you to do something productive rather than sit around gulping down a tub of Ben & Jerry’s finest ice cream.
• Ditch the salty food
Salt is sodium chloride, and whenever you consume too much sodium chloride, it concentrates your body fluid. Then, your body starts accumulating water to reverse the concentration of the body fluids. The result is that you end up with a bloated abdomen and feel heavy. Remember, water is attracted to sodium rather wildly. Wherever sodium goes, water follows!
• Get yourself a job with a morning shift
It’s not only important to get adequate sleep, but it’s important to get adequate sleep at night. Remember, early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy and wise!
You’ll probably regret it at first, but when you get used to the routine, you’ll wonder why you’ve never thought about it before. Waking early will make you feel fresh, energetic and optimist. You’ll have a long day ahead of you for ensuring productivity.
Furthermore, our body has a rhythmic cycle that varies from day to night. The level of some of our hormones considerably varies from day to night, making sleeping at night more peaceful and restful.
• Start your day with a glass of lemon water
It’s a great way to rid your body of built-up toxins and also a great way to boost your metabolism.
• Drink green tea once a day
The benefits of green tea are innumerable and endless. It will make you feel healthier and it will improve your skin’s texture. Green tea is loaded with antioxidants that boost your metabolism and protect your body from a number of diseases. It’s also a great way to lose those extra calories!
So, what are you waiting for? Follow the tips above and see how your body transforms in no time! Once it does transform be proud of your achievement, you won’t be able to stop looking at yourself in the mirror. Also, the next time your ex looks at you, they won’t be able to look away either!
